Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle from Bierkoning. Pours a slight hazed light amber with a nice good big off white head and good lace. Aroma is earthy zesty orange and mango citrus with a little earthy hint, some toffee malts, leather and musty hops. Flavor is light toasted malts, and has a slight weed- marijuana herbal kick to it in the aroma and flavor, some cracker cereal maltiness with lgiht caramel sweetness, then a citrus tart light finish with some mineral and earthy hops in the end. Good stuff!

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a medium, firm head. Grainy-pale-malty aroma with some honey sweetness. Pale, sweetish malt with herby hops and honey hints in the flavor. Fruitiness comes up with yeast. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated but smooth palate. A quite balanced blonde on the sweeter, fruitiier side. Not far from tripel.

Douberd (4536) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2014
Stubby bottle, 330 ml. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 7% Clear body, deep orange golden in colour. Tall off-white head, thick with very good retention.Medium lacing left behind. Weirdly nice aroma, fruity, some bananas but processed-like an not the actual fruit, sugar, some dough. Now that I am thinking about it the smell I was looking for is banana bread but a quite sweet one. Taste is also fruity but more complex, again banana bread, along with peaches, hops, sugar, light yeast, light wine notes, with a mild but satisfying bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, carbonatiion is a bit high but still on good levels. Overall very surprised by tis one, it was dirt cheap and sitting on the shelf along other more mediocre beers so I was expecting yet one of the sae but it really surpassed my expectations.

Bullit (4381) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle from Burg Bieren. Hazy golden colour, large white head. Aroma is caramel, spices, fruits and yeast. Flavour is sweet caramel, bit spicy and fruity. Sweet finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Martinus (4362) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2011
Pale light amber with a cream head which isn’t sticking around long. Aroma of malts, some citrus fruits, and some caramel. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, yeast and only a slight fruitiness, which is rather unexpected given the fruity smell. Dry finish. Rather thin but altogether not an unpleasant beer at all. (from tap @ De Kluizenaar)
